Dr. Cyr received a MSc and a PhD in experimental psychology and a PsyD in clinical psychology from the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM). Her graduate research focused on examining the role of brain neurochemical systems in cognition and behavior, using various techniques, such as PET imaging. Her clinical predoctoral internship focused on the treatment of patients with pathological eating and patients with OCD. In recent years, she has developed an interest in the neurobiology and treatment of disorders characterized by deficits in self-regulation (inhibition, emotion regulation, and impulse control), particularly eating disorders.
